At what Cost(as)

Why does NBC keep Bob Costas around for the Olympics?

Every time I see him, he says something embarrassing, if not crossing the line to being legally actionable.

Classic was the opening ceremonies in Athens, where, upon the entry of the team from Djibouti, he quipped "You bet Djibouti."

And last night, after Mary Carillo's thoughtful color segment on the Shaolin monks, he couldn't help but reference Carl Douglas' ultracamp Kung Fu Fighting.

Know what LCD stands for? Lowest common denominator.
